This illustration, appearing as the frontispiece to the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Company "New Edition" reprint, depicts Ellen standing in a garden. A caption below the illustration reads, "Bear a lily in thy hand: / Gates of brass cannot withstand / One touch of that mighty wand." This caption quotes a stanza from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "Maidenhood," and emphasizes Ellen's innocence and purity. In the illustration, Ellen stands in a garden surrounded by flowers and trees. She holds a book in one hand and caresses a lily with the other. She wears a brimmed hat with a bow and gazes directly at the viewer of the illustration.
